A giant spiderweb. The return of Bill Ward, producer, actor and multi-talented artist, who has out-scared himself with this year's Haunted House showcase. And, if that's not enough, incredibly carved pumpkins, dancers, cookies, cupcakes and cocoa are back for Brite Nites, possibly Warren's biggest show of the year.
The Wagner Farm Arboretum’s 2013 Halloween-themed Brite Nites fundraiser for the preserved farm returns this week for a fourth year.
The annual fundraising event at Wagner Farm turns pumpkin carving into a fine art, and also includes refreshments and fun along with scary scenes. For details on a scarecrow competition, click here.
Local schools are scheduled to visit Brite Nites on Oct. 16. General public dates for the event are from 6:45 to 8 p.m. on Friday through Sunday evenings, Oct. 18, 19, 20 and Oct. 25, 26, 27. To purchase tickets via credit card (Visa, Mastercard, Discover), click here, or stop by the Arboretum’s office on Mountain Ave.
Garden paths are unpaved and the organizers ask that no strollers or pets accompany visitors. For ticket and event information, please call 908-350-7383 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
